I need new books recommendations. I'm not picky with subject matter, so long as it's well written.

Some titles I have read:

Harry Potter

Vampire Academy Series

Bloodlines Series

Divergent Series

Mortal Instrument Series

Hunger Games

Infernal Devices series

Scorpio Races

Wallbanger

Beautiful Creatures Series

Water for Elephants

The Help

This is of course not the whole list :) just titles that people generally recommend to me.

I just started And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini it's his 3rd book, it's awesome so far. If you haven't read his other 2 books I highly recommend them as well (The Kite Runner, and A Thousand Splendid Suns).

Which one? Lover at Last or The King? LaL is the last of the "brotherhood" books since everyone is mated now. The King is the start of the new age... Next one is The Shadows, and they are supposed to go on as such after that.

I LOVED the first books. They kept me interested and even had me laughing out at some parts. The newer ones are not as good. The characters are lost in the sub plots anymore.

I'm a Nicholas sparks fan too. Another author I have found is Leila meecham. Roses and Somerset were really great books.

I' ve been reading a lot of books by Catherine Ryan Hyde. If you have ever seen Pay It Forward, she wrote the book. The books I have read have been very engrossing.
